If you got super drunk on reality TV and made a complete ass of yourself, would you care? I think most people would, particularly if they, even more idiotically, called someone a "f****t" and a "douchebag loser" in their alcohol-induced stupor. But not Sara Schapiro! Nope, the woman who had a brief appearance on Princesses: Long Island is happy with her television debut. And the fact that she's a teacher who will probably lose her job after her embarrassing display? No matter! She "had fun".
If you watch the show, you know who I'm talking about. She was the drunken, bikini-clad woman at the pool party, who wouldn't stop harassing Amanda's boyfriend, Jeff. She was rude, crude, and seriously sloppy. And again, she used an anti-gay slur. It's now been revealed that she's actually a first grade teacher on the Upper East Side of New York with a $66,000 salary.
Schapiro told the New York Daily News: "We're all drinking and having fun in our bathing suits. I didn't think about being a teacher at the time. I'm probably going to end up resigning." Then, when asked whether or not she'd change anything about her appearance, she said: "Nope! I was on TV. I don’t care. I had a good time." Keep it classy, Schapiro.
The fact that Schapiro, who is under investigation by the Education Department for her actions, doesn't regret what she did, and is willing to forgo her well-paid job as a first grade teacher for three minutes of sheer idiocy is pretty unbelievable to me. But also, it speaks volumes about the world we live in. The hope that she'd garner five minutes of fame on a trashy reality show is more of a priority than her students or her career.
It's actually probably for the best if Schapiro leaves or is fired from her job. Not only does it seem like she is a horrible role model from her brief stint on the show, it's been unearthed that she was arrested for drug possession, driving while intoxicated, and reckless driving in Florida in 2002. So yeah. It's probably best she and the school part ways. She is better suited for trashy reality TV. And that's not a compliment.
Check out a clip from the party. What do you think of this?
